Richard Commey has vowed to make amends in 2017 by winning Ghana a world title

Commey missed out on a chance to hold a World title, after he lost twice in the last half of 2016 to  Robert Easter Jr and Denis Shafikov in America and Russia respectively.

Richard Commey, however, has an opportunity to accomplish what he failed to achieve  last year, as he comes face to face with Belgian Hedi Slimani for the World Boxing Council (WBC) International Silver Lightweight Title

“I wish I had won that that title for my country, that was my dream as a boxer, but unfortunately I could not grab those titles for Ghana, but that is boxing, it would not always go your way and you have accept it and move on.

“This is a new year and a new era for Richard Commey, I am going to contest for the WBC Silver International Title and I urge all Ghanaians to trust and support me.

“I have got the chance to contest for this title because of my previous bouts so people should be calm and keep supporting Richard Commey.

“I am definitely going to be a champion in 2017, I’m going to win the WBC Silver title, which is my first for the year and all my subsequent bouts, so Ghanaians should expect a great year.

“I am not worried about my defeats and there is no pressure on me, because we have got great boxers who were beaten but came back stronger. I am not a failure, I am working hard and I know with the help of God I will live to the expectations.” Richard Commey stated.
